Editors' Review

Comodo Dragon is a Chrome-based Web browser with enhanced security, privacy, and stability. Like Chrome, Dragon is free. It's available as a standalone browser or as part of Comodo's antivirus and PC security software. Dragon's unique features include access to Comodo's Secured DNS server network, which enhances privacy and can even speed up browsing in some cases. Recent updates include faster launching and page loading and better graphics rendering.

Pros

Chromium engine: Dragon is built on Google's Chromium browser engine, the same core that the Chrome browser uses.

Google Account: Dragon's compatible with most Chrome extras, including themes, plug-ins, and extensions. You can sign in and access your Google Account from Dragon, too.

Secure: Dragon enhances Chromium's security with unique features like Domain Validation technology, which can tell good SSL certificates from bad ones. Dragon enhances privacy by blocking download tracking.

Cons

Looks: Dragon's start-button menu and streamlined layout break with Chrome's look, but the default style didn't thrill us. Fortunately, Dragon is compatible with many Chrome themes.

Compatibility: Dragon might conflict with other software (including browsers) in certain situations, such as when syncing or importing data from another open browser.

Bottom Line

We've used Comodo Dragon for extended periods, with and without Comodo's antivirus software, and found it different enough from Chrome to be a viable alternative, especially for users who value enhanced security and privacy. Like Chrome, Dragon works best when set up to your satisfaction, but Dragon's added security comes into its own in day-to-day browsing.

"Horrifically insecure and dangerous"

February 18, 2016  |  By Wolfpup3

2016-02-18 10:57:48  |  By Wolfpup3

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 46.9.15.424

Pros

Nothing. Do not use this.

Cons

Comodo is clueless and doesn't know what they're doing. This browser doesn't enforce a same origin policy, which ALL other browser do, making it horrifically insecure. Security researchers have pointed that out to Comodo, and have been blown off.

If you want more information on what this means, listen to Security now 546 around the 35 minute mark.

Just do NOT use this thing. It is the LEAST secure browser, not "enhanced" as it claims. Use Firefox, or Chrome, or Internet Explorer/Edge, or Safari if you're on a Macintosh (and presumably Opera is fine too). Any of those are fine so long as you keep them updated.

"Excellent, stable and secure!"

October 16, 2015  |  By GCG1000

2015-10-16 15:32:23  |  By GCG1000

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 45.6.11.385

Pros

Good GUI and security features. Fast and stable. Like Conodo's DNS.

Cons

Please bring back the Dragon Eye as the browser's logo. "COMODO" in the browser's header is unexciting, no distinctive and ho-hum!

Summary

I've used CD on and off as my default over the last couple of years. The current release is excellent and Thank goodness it's NOT Chromodo, etc! Comodo should focus on CD and no other for its branded browser.

"Works with Windows 10"

August 31, 2015  |  By Bighugs1965

2015-08-31 04:38:03  |  By Bighugs1965

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 43.3.3.185

Pros

Faster and more secure than....
Internet Explorer
Microsoft Edge
Google Chrome
and any other browser I have Ever tried. Especially with Adguard!!!!

Cons

Has the same ugly look as Google Chrome

Summary

Love it, Love it, Love it. Would have given it five stars but it looks too much like Google Chrome. I wish the menu was on the left of the browser like previous versions had.

Updated on Aug 31, 2015

Just found out that Netflix doesn't work with Comodo Dragon. No big deal. I use a Roku for that anyway. Besides there is always Internet Explorer for such occasions.

"Wants to replace Chrome. Will not load if Chrome is ru"

May 27, 2015  |  By manxe

2015-05-27 16:55:43  |  By manxe

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 36.1.1.22

Pros

Nothing could make me use this ruse.

Cons

Install "failed" when I would not take down Chrome. It appears to want to replace Chrome, not just take data from it. Wondering where my data went to. Did this phone home? I refused to close Chrome and it failed to install ... I HOPE !!

Summary

Why on earth would CNet do this to us ??!! This is a repeat of the "Cnet Installer" fiasco that infected every PC with malware. Cnet has lost their sense of responsibility. DO NOT TRUST CNET any longer.

"Consider this your warning!"

January 14, 2015  |  By hillbilly88

2015-01-14 15:40:50  |  By hillbilly88

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 36.1.1.21

Pros

There are none. The rating should allow 0 stars instead of .5!

Cons

Address bar adware and click bait, auto redirects URLs entered, disguises the redirecting adware as "Verified Official Sites"

I would strongly encourage the Cnet editors to reevaluate their review!

Summary

The sad thing about all of this, is that the one thing this company was promising to protect, your security and privacy, is violated in methods much worse than is possible with the plain Chrome. In the support forums, they attempt to fool their users into thinking the Verified Sponsored Sites redirects are actually a form of Innovation! How crazy is that? I trusted these people! I feel so violated, as if I have been burglarized! Trust me, you do not want to use Comodo products! Just read about it on their forums for yourself if you don't believe me.

"Too Slow; No Menu"

September 08, 2014  |  By fredg06

2014-09-08 14:33:12  |  By fredg06

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 33.1

Pros

None that I could find.

Cons

MUCH Slower than Opera, version 12., with no menu bar, and difficult to use.

Summary

I have Windows XP, with SP3, and Internet explorer 8.
I have tried Firefox 26, but it is too slow opening, crashes no matter what I try, and is not worth the effort to use anymore.
Comodo Dragon is MUCH slower than Opera version 12. It has no easy to use interface, and tries to connect every website with it's home page or elsewhere. It also installs PrivDog without telling you. I denied installing the security.....glad I did.
I finally used System Restore, then cleaned out Windows Explorer Program Files of those entries. I also found some PrivDog entries in the Registry which I deleted.
I do NOT advise using Comodo Dragon !!

"Great Browser"

July 17, 2014  |  By jal9904

2014-07-17 10:04:55  |  By jal9904

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 33.1

Pros

Excellent Security.
Based on chrome.

Cons

Privdog disabled cookies so I had to turn them off in the settings.
Nothing else.

Summary

It is a great Web Browser which is now my default. With PrivDog and Comodo Web Inspector it will tell you if a page is infected/unsafe. I like the fact that is is based of chrome.

"Stable and More Secure"

February 27, 2014  |  By PatMySecret

2014-02-27 16:42:29  |  By PatMySecret

 |  Version: Comodo Dragon 31.1.0

Pros

Very few crashes
Has many extension/add-ons available
More privacy protection
You choose the browser totally voluntarily

Cons

Still miss a few of Firefox's add-ons

Summary

Compared to Firefox, Comodo is so much more stable. Those Firefox admissions of embarrassment grate on the nerve after a while.
I'm not Google-phobic, but yes, they do seem more than a wee-bit power-hungry..and that Chrome really tries to push itself when you do software downloads.
From what I was just reading, it seems that even when you don't use Comodo's secure DNS server option, that you are still provided w/an extra layer of privacy that Chrome doesn't give. (They should play this up in more detail.. maybe I just need to read more).
It's great! :)
